After a long night of can’t-fall-asleep, anxiety running through my system, and even a nightmare, I finally realized the blazing force present to discuss this week.
Mars entered Aquarius on Monday evening and will be there until November 15th.
And when I realized it, I had that #OMGAstrologyWorks moment where I recognized all the other clues that I had noticed but didn’t account to any single influence yet.
Feeling un-excited about my increasing structure to my calendar. Feeling more angry and agitated lately (Mars is also going over my Aquarius Sun). My Aquarius-rising husband re-starting his consulting work where he a) connects and networks for people online or b) shakes up how things have been going.
You can’t make these “ripe” moments up.
But you can affect how you run through the opportunities the cosmos provide.
Mars in Aquarius can be reactive and bring anxiety, disorder, and explosive endings to welcomed and – maybe should have thought that through – things.
In this Week’s Considerations, I offer you – in Mars in Aquarius light-speed (excuse me!) – ways to recognize the Mars influence and how to channel it for positive outcomes.
I’ll show you a couple warning temptations he might offer as well as some great ways to re-direct the energy when it comes up.
Day Guides below.
Astrological Day Guides: September 11 – 17, 2018
Read these guides as a whole to get a feel for the week’s tone. There’s always some overlap of themes. Then read them as you need them, day-by-day.
Tuesday – Time to get clear with your partner, business partner or best friend. Discuss finances, power dynamics, and where you’re looking to go. When the end result is shared, the necessary changes and shifts become apparent.
(Moon in Libra until 6:57pm EDT when it squares Pluto. Sun-Jupiter sextile, Sun-Pluto trine).
Wednesday – A day of inner conflicts, give yourself space to navigate through them – even if they don’t make sense. The void moon encourages you to do an inner cleanse – whether through food, unsettled feelings, or conflicting opinions circulating your thoughts. By the end of the day, you have the opportunity to give structure and designated space for the different parts of you to express themselves. From there, you can better evaluate how they serve you and find more peace. With inner peace, remember – it often comes added productivity and effectiveness.
(Void Moon until 2:15pm EDT. Jupiter-Pluto sextile, Venus-Uranus opposition in the early morning. Moon opposes Uranus, conjoins Venus and sextiles Saturn).
Thursday – You can feel powerful today, even if sensitive on this inside. Day favored for strategic writing, creativity, and vision making. Make it happen, and let the raw feelings bring depth and conviction to your efforts.
(Venus-Saturn sextile. Scorpio Moon sextiles Mercury, trines Neptune and sextiles Pluto. Mercury-Neptune opposition).
Friday – Your inner world continues to surface old feelings, making it difficult to concentrate. The all-day void moon urges you to take it easy on yourself. Before you plan the escape route for this weekend, recognize what is and give it some comfort. Exercise it out. If you don’t do it now, it’ll just come up again at another inopportune moment. <3
(Void Moon all day until 8:45pm EDT when Moon enters Sagittarius. Moon-Mars sextile at 10:23pm EDT).
Saturday – Set sail for new adventures that bring you out of your familiar and mundane. Change up your scenery, hang out with new people, try out a foreign cuisine. You might just appreciate the break!
(Sagittarius Moon no aspects. Mercury-Pluto trine).
Sunday – A part of you just may not care today. Give yourself some healthy space from your usual work and responsibilities, but don’t throw them out the window just yet. Take out any pent-up resentment on a home project instead and tear that old crud into pieces. Shredding paper may be strangely satisfying today – just saying it’s in the cosmos!
(Sagittarius Moon squares Mercury then Sun to go void at 7:15pm EDT. Mercury-Jupiter sextile).
Monday – Get your week off to a positive start with a team meeting. Even if you work for yourself, connecting with other self-employed peeps can get you motivated for a meaningful (and productive) week ahead. Theme of today – enjoy the results that connection to others can bring you.
(Capricorn Moon trines Uranus, conjoins Saturn and sextiles Venus).
